Featured Music Friday: Rune Husk EP

Featured Music Friday: Rune Husk EP

On January 13, experimental band from Athens, Georgia, of Montreal, dropped a surprise EP – Rune Husk. With this new EP, the group is returning to its heavy focus on progressive rock, which has co-dominated the sounds of their last two studio albums (along with a more EDM tone). Of the EP’s four tracks, standouts include “Internecine Larks” and “Stag to the Stable,” the latter having a true David Bowie feel. Listen to the full EP here. Featured Music Friday is brought to you by Blackfire Research.

Take a look to see if your favorite album of 2016 made the cut.
